Influencing With the Flowing Energy of the Self


“Energy is increased in solitude. If you are filled with the energy of the Self, that energy flows out of you and nourishes everyone in your vicinity. You don’t have to direct this power outwards, this energy will flow of its own accord.”

–Annamalai Swami (Indian Spiritual Teacher and Personal Attendant of Ramana Maharshi, 1906-1995)

God’s Activity

“God’s activity runs through the entire universe. It wells up around and penetrates every created being. Wherever they are, it is there also. It runs ahead of them, it stays with them, and it follows after them.”

–Jean-Pierre de Caussade (French Jesuit Priest and Author, 1675-1751)

The Concerns of a Person of Spirit

Stuart WIlde pictures 020.jpg

“The concerns of Spirit-man are his levels of energy and the inner impact he creates for himself, not his staying alive. Spirit-man sees himself as eternal and prays only that his path may be well trod, with honor. He does not seek end results and is detached from concerns about life and death, political change, or social structure. Spirit-man rests within himself and is busy manipulating his own life, not the lives of others.”        

–Stuart Wilde (English-born Author, Lecturer and Humorist 1946-)

“Many people feel that in the contemplation of nature and in communication with other living things, they become aware of some kind of force, or something, behind this apparent mask which we see in front of us, and they call it God.”           

–Roman Kroitor (Canadian Filmmaker and Co-Inventor of IMAX, 1926-)   

The Universal Soul

Rabbi David A. Cooper.jpg

“All living souls in the world cumulatively make up part of a universal soul…. the soul giving us vitality is connected to, and draws sustenance from, a universal soul.”          

–Rabbi David A. Cooper (American Rabbi and Writer, 1939-)

Profound Thoughts About Prana

“Prana is implicate to matter but explicate to mind; mind is implicate to prana but explicate to soul; soul is implicate to mind but explicate to spirit; and the spirit is the source and suchness of the entire sequence.”      

–Ken Wilber (American Philosopher, 1949-)

Like Golden Sunshine


“The pure and primal life-force appears, if seen in vision, as golden sunshine.”       

–Paul Brunton (a.k.a. Raphael Hurst, English Philosopher, Traveler, Spiritual Teacher and Author, 1898-1981)
